Well, poor parenting of Americans and the keeping in the compound of foreign 
workers in Arabia so that they don't mess with village girls in the night are 
two exemplars of this fencing idea: never praising BP for not making a mistake 
while it was supplying the petrol addicts, fences off, ahistoricizes, time and 
space as a kind of pedophiliac model for the kids to mimic later on, when they 
are old enough to drive.

Wahhabism is a fenced-off idea from Arabia that still wishes to expand. The 
Wahhabist 'wedge' gets injected into Chechnya. Yet....

'Skoro u vakhkhabitov poiavilis' nekotorye perspektivy v etom napravlenni V 1937 
Standard Oil Company of California (nyne -- Chevron Texaco) nashla pervuiu neft' 
v Saudovskoi Arabii.'
(Paul Klebnikov, Interview with a Barbarian pp. 222-3)

Unfortunately, this book is still awaiting translation. The reader, however, by 
romanization, does have the means to do so themselves if interested.

Politkovskaya's passage on Daghestanians who get to see their first black person 
is a must-read, for the black persons now showing up where in the past there 
were none, is precisely the Wahhabist wedge we are referring to, as well as the 
D&G book-cover colors cobalt-teal and khaki. In Politkovskaya's Daghestan, the 
Wahhabi is a huge, armed, black female who struts the streets of the village.

We note the black mmigrations from the ghettos of Los Angeles within the past 
1.5 decades, and before the first Arab president of the U.S. entered the White 
House, at least one southwestern mosque had already been built. NOw, Arab-owned 
Duke Power Company is calling and harrassing customers who are tardy in paying 
their bills (Indiana).

Dear Charles,

I am not quite sure what you mean.

Would yo be so kind to explain it an european a little bit more?

greetings Harald
